Description

The title of this course isn’t click bait.

I actually built a web design business, grew and scaled it, then sold it for 7 figures 3 years later. And there’s a formula to how it can be done that I want to show you.

This course contains everything that I learned over the course of those 3 years, AND the 2 years before that, when I was a struggling freelancer. Believe me, building a business that can operate and grow without you is far better and gives you far more freedom than being a freelancer!

Who is this course for?

If this is you, you should take this course:

  • You want to build a web design business, not just freelance

  • You want your business to be able to run without you so that you can earn passive income

  • You want the freedom that SHOULD come with being an entrepreneur, but doesn’t for so many

Or if either of these describe you, this course is for you:

  • you’re already a web designer, but you haven’t been able to grow and scale your business

  • you’re just starting out and you want to do things the right way the first time (I didn’t, but with this you will)

Get the 30-Day Plan to Launch Your Successful Business

The cornerstone of this course is a rigorous 30-day plan that will guide you through:

  • How to find a profitable niche

  • How to position yourself using your market’s psychological profile

  • How to leverage pricing as a marketing tool

  • How to get your first clients without a portfolio

  • How to close deals by overcoming objections

  • How to craft winning proposals

  • How to build recurring revenue by charging monthly

  • How to build authority with a smart content strategy

  • How to build an email list and then convert subscribers into customers

  • How to create a feedback loop that generates referrals

  • How to craft cold emails to supplement your pipeline

  • How to maximize profit and remove yourself from the business by productizing your offerings

In short, you’ll learn everything that I’ve done to build a million-dollar web design business.

Get Access to the Productized Web Design Business Vault

Who is the target audience?
  • You're just starting out and want to build a web design BUSINESS, not just freelance
  • Or, you’re already a web designer, but you haven’t been able to grow and scale your business
